netherland mixed media art

i like these fun retro collages with acrylic mounted on wood, from chicago’s david van alphen for his netherland art. there is something so rich about their simplicity to me. i also like his color choices and the new modern context that comes through this nostalgic imagery when he isolates and enhances them.





david’s works are currently on display at the dva gallery, the gallery he owns right on lincoln avenue in the city! be sure to check out his flickr stream too if you want to see more.
